Good morning, and welcome to UDI’s MDS Monday Challenge #21 – The 4th of July! I know you’re expecting the traditional “fireworks” page. But that just wasn’t what I was inspired to create. You see, my Papaw passed away on July 4th when I was a child. And that had a huge impact on my family. So my page is a tribute to what and who I think of when I remember the 4th of July.
This is really a very simple page. I started with the Night and Day DSP and added a Crumb Cake layer for my journaling. And I finished it with a few brads The only trick I used was to add my background layer as a punch. This way, I could flip my DSP so the design is where I wanted it. Take a look at the my finished page and compare it to the original DSP and you’ll see what I mean.
Now it’s time to check out the other inspiring creations from the Design Team members at Utah Diva’s International.
